There might not be. Steve Smith is one of the toughest players in the league, so there probably isn't. Big hitters have gotten into the heads of receivers pretty much throughout football's history, though.

Yeah....but Steve Smith has proven to feed off contact. Hitting Smith after a 30 yarder isn't going to discourage him.

Issue was the next drive Cam threw a pick first play. Next drive another pick.

Yes, Smith is scared.

Yeah but the hit was after a run, not directly after the catch. And plus, it all depends on if he is targeted and what not. We didn't see him "alligator arm" or shy away from contact.

Steve Smith loves contact arguably more than any WR in the game....he hopped right up and then gave the rookie the Mutumbo finger wave.

Let's not a make a hit on a WR going out of bounds something that there is nothing to support it being

Barron needs work in pass coverage. He was shaky all preseaon as it.


This just isn't correct. He didn't play in game one or four, played one series in game two and in game three, they held the Patriots to one rushing touchdown in the first half and he had an INT for a touchdown.

Also, to all the responses, I acknowledged Steve Smith's toughness. I think it's most likely just a coincidence that he wasn't involved in the game plan after the big hit.

It was a tipped ball against NE......tip drill. not coverage. Making a play yes, not an example of coverage ability

Barron had one good pass breakup....but overall wasn't good in coverage Sun....the opposite. I like the kid. David had a good game.....Barron had one good play.....with a lot of bad. Those type hits don't register as anything in my book. We have some guys on our team that will make those hits and they don't impress

Well, agree to disagree. I'm sure you guys have little interest in talking about a Buc, so I'll just say what I originally intended...I think Kuechly will be very good.

At times it looked like Carolina had determined that with Cam Newton (+0.1) at the helm they could immediately morph into the Al Davis’ Raiders. Passing deep (20+ yards) on 24% of throws was more, on average, than any QB attempted last year, and certainly not very successful. Throwing mostly post and go routes against the Buccaneer cornerbacks, Newton eschewed the vulnerable short middle of the field where rookies Lavonte David and Mark Barron were suffering growing pains; for example on the second offensive play of the game when Barron completely lost Greg Olsen.

I do.


71 yards - 1 TD. Over a season that 1136 and 16TDs. So based on that data I do not think Graham got shutdown today. Of course, I didn't see Kuechly on Graham once during the game, so we either have an idiot coaching staff that choose not to shutdown the Saints* best receiving target, or our coaching staff knew that he didn't have the ability to do so which is fair because no LB can take on that assignment on their own.
